creates Mario in a parody of Michelangelo's "Creation of Adam" from the Sistine Chapel
Oh boy! What a journey on this drawing. I was joking with my best friend around about doing a drawing like this and after a few ideas of doing classic game characters in well known masterpieces, we came up with this crazy idea.
I know there's quite a few inaccurate attributions to Miyamoto on some of the characters represented here but I really wanted him to be surrounded by some of Nintendo's finest
I'm aware that I'm also missing some females like Pauline from the original Donkey Kong but it was getting a bit crowded in that little swarm so I kept it limited to some of the more recognizable characters.
From left to right: Mario, Midna, Shigeru Miyamoto, Daisy, Princess Peach, Toadette, Zelda and Birdo. Lower row: Rosalina and Samus.
The leaf is from Super Mario Bros. 3. It's the one that grants you the raccoon tail.
Had a lot of fun drawing this one out! Created in Adobe Photoshop CS4.
